Keenan Marshall Keller is a writer, artist, publisher and co-director at Drippy Bone Books, curator, and zinester who joined us a year ago to preview L.A. Zine Fest 2012. He has made his triumphant return to talk about L.A. Zine Fest 2013 and all the events he’ll be participating in or producing the next few weeks, such as the L.A. Art Book Fair, the Le Dernier Cri 20th Anniversary Show at Synchronicity (also the site of the Floating World Animation Fest’s DMTV2), and the L.A. Zine Fest Reading and Rock Spectacular.

Gene and Libby aren’t on this episode, so Bob produced a clone to be a special guest host. Enter Jonny, who has a stunning resemblance to Victor Vector of Man or Astro-man?, and a member of the band Humans (if you’re a fan of that band, or good music in general, there’s a surprise hidden for you in the episode). Keenan, Jonny, BFH, and Bob chat about zines, comics, music, communities in subcultures, collaboration, touring, and their inspirational first album purchases.
